    During Pearl era, Screaming Eagles, during Watson era more like Screaming Beagles

    101st airborne had some type of classes/division/rotc on campus in the early years. That’s how they got the name.

    If I say “shuckey darn, better luck next time”. Is that ok?

    Oh geez I sound like John Mark
    Just show respect even to Watson. You have been one of the posters on this board name calling and everything. All of us want USI to win but Watson is gone after the next loss, so just be patient. I hate to root against USI but it might be the best thing that could happen today. Problem about today is Drury isn't a lot better than USI and plays in a joke of a division and that's why they have so many wins. I think Drury wins but I won't be surprised if USI pulls it out since the players know this could be it for Watson.

    Don’t look know, but the second best team in that “joke” of a division just beat East team Lewis by 40.

    Didn't the team that just got beat by 40 itself beat USI by 20 the other day? Yikes.

    Well the board made it about a day....and now back to the gong show.

    sigh.

    I would definitely not consider the West to be a "joke" of a division since they have both DU and TSU as well as a much-improved WJ. The Central division is the weak one right now with only Maryville really representing well. Traditionally the East would be the heavyweights, but this year we are seeing a slump in several teams.

    I know I’ve said this before. But watch this game. Look how Drury all five players moving on offense constantly. Then look at usi. One maybe two players move. Rest stand around. Not at all tough to guard. This to me is the biggest contrast with any of our other opponents and I’ve been saying this for years. Am I just crazy?

  14. Default Re: Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles

    Drury runs their offense with a purpose. All of their cuts are decisive. But we also have too many weak links on the floor. Guys who don't bring much to the game and take up space.

    I apologize to the basketball gods for making this comment. Please open up the hoop again for our 3's to fall.

    Please. Watch their offensive movement vs ours. I just don’t get it. Not claiming to be a basketball whiz but geez. All five of our guys are chasing five of their guys around the court.

    It's funny you say that. I'm not just trying to hate on USI, not because I don't want to but because I recognize the "those who live in glass houses" principle is in full effect for KWC fans this year. But, I pulled up the video feed about 1/2 way through the first half and was kind of half-way watching it while working and the first thing I thought was "wow those guys are really moving on offense, Watson must have lit some kind of fire under them for this game somehow" ... then I realized that Drury was wearing white and what I initially took as black unis were actually USI's navy blue. So yeah, there is definitely a contrast in the motion between these teams.

    Always been the case. In one set Julius just stood in the corner...I guess he was taking a breather. And screens, the guys don’t use them. Someone will set a screen for teammate and they don’t run it tight, basically worthless.

    Part of that is because Drury has "bigs" that can move laterally. With Dickson and Rajala on the floor at the same time we are too slow. And Dickson doesn't even look to score. We will continue to be in chase mode unless we adjust our lineup.

    Dickson and Little are killing us this game.
